Incredibly tasty, somewhat sweet and crunchy Baked Stuffed Pumpkin that has wonderful flavor and texture. A perfect use for small pumpkins. Glorious when served with roast chicken, turkey or game birds, but equally at home with roast pork. Use the small pumpkins left over from your Halloween decorations that were not cut or decorated.
